3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy pale golden amber color with a large foamy white head that settles to a thin film and lacing. Aroma has bread, biscuit some farmhouse and lemon zest and yeast. Taste has a bitter salty lemon flavor with some bread and biscuit some yeast a little pepper and and hidden funk. Palate is thin fizzy and finishes dry. Nice light Saison without the booze that some American Saisons have. 8 bucks a 6 pack is nice too!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a white head that leaves some nice lacing. Nice carbonation too. Aroma is lemon, spice, a little funk. Taste is somewhat bitter with peppery and floral notes. Maybe a touch too bitter, but clean drinking and crisp. A nice change from many of the fuller bodied saisons I’ve had lately.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle pours a hazy golden with a nice, white, frothy head. Earthy aroma, some grass and hay, with a bit of banana runts in the background. Flavor is more subtle banana esters, plus more of the earthy, grassy notes. A little too watery in the mouthfeel for me. Finishes dry and clean.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy copper color with a thick head that fades very slowly to plenty of lacing. Aroma of citrus, fruit, spice and what seems to be banana. Taste of citrus, fruit some banana, spices and some bread. Mild bitterness blended with tart. Fairly dry finish. Medium body with ample carbonation. Decent beer for the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle- Pours hazy light golden with a one finger head. Aroma is floral, light spices, yeasty. The taste is mild funk, creamy, yeasty, strong banana flavors, not very complex, but pretty good actually, I could drink more than one of these. The body is medium, carbonation is medium high, creamy mouthfeel. Overall I liked it, a working mans saison, which is what the style was originally, before it became a higher end beer, but this is very basic, and tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from a 12oz brown bottle into a schooner glass. It poured a light hazy golden amber colour with deep, deep everlasting white foam and loads of Belgian lace. Some true to style Saison and/or Belgian Singel traits, though weaker and less complex overall than classic examples. Slightly grainy, spicy, fruity, citrusy, earthy, tart, yeasty, with some honey graham cracker notes, with a very dry finish. Nice noble hops aromas, but the flavour/bitterness was a bit harsh. A little mushy and bland comparatively, but still vastly better than most mass-produced lagers and golden ales. I would gladly drink this again and again, especially as an old-timey summer refresher. Good, not great.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bright Orange-yellow only slightly cloudy. It looks filtered. Quick dissipating white head some legs. Aroma of Belgian yeast, co2, and alcohol comes across like markers. Taste is good though with bubblegum and banana. Slight funk going on as well. Watery mouthfeel. Would be great on a hot day in lieu of budweiser.
